    that's the reality of our partnership, not some stereotypical swipe at women in general.

    Nice try though.

    I'm confused as to their business plan there. Are they buying super low mileage vans and then outfitting them with their parts? Or are they buying new vans and putting 3k miles on them when they install their parts? Or is that a one off type sale for a demo vehicle or something like that?

    Looks super nice though and the price doesn't seem bad.

    It’s a demo van. Hence all the van compass mods on there.

    I’ve seen the 2” lift awd transits, it’s a nice setup especially with the modified rear shock mounts to increase clearance.

    Ok, this has probably been asked/answered lots of times, but Iím getting a bit frustrated. I got a diesel truck with an 8í bed, and Iím looking for a camper. I want it to be roughly 8í long, no rear overhang so I can put the moto on the hitch rack or hook up the sled trailer without any hitch extensions. Iíd also like to keep the weight moderate or even light. I certainly donít want a bathroom or anything else heavy and complicated. Why is this so hard to find? Everything has big overhangs and is heavy.
    Iím also trying to spend less than 6k or so. Stuff has gone by here and there, but overall seems like a hole in the used market. Any brands/models i should be looking for? Iíd love a Bigfoot or Northern Lite as Iím only using it during winter, but those are all gigantic.

    Look at Capri for simple, hardside, on the less expensive end. Also (but I don't know if they're still made) Six Pack, which are Four Wheel Campers but hardside.

    I'm assuming you want hardside due to comment about winter use.

    Almost got a Capri when I was trying to make things work with the Tundra. The owner seemed like he would have been great to work with. More than 10k and less than 20k, I think. Maybe 14k ish 3 years ago?

    Under $6k in most markets for a TC=sketchy and 20-30 years old is my guess.

    A friend has a Capri thatís mounted to the bed rails; seems really nice to build out as you wish and keep it lighter. It doesnít look like they sell those anymore though.

    Definitely want to go with a hardside. Iím located in WA, and seems like I might be able to find a smaller bigfoot in the Vancouver area if I get lucky, seems to be more up thereÖ.

    Bigfoot campers are made in B.C. so that is likely why there are more in the Vancouver area.

    That will be a really tough find for all the reasons mentioned. And because here in 'Murica, bigger is moar betterer.

    As someone who went through the same process you did; I ultimately settled on a Lance. insulated, heated, but has the self-contained stuff. Given that you have a proper oil burner, I would not worry about weight unless you're also towing something heavy.

    There are plenty of 8' campers that don't have the overhang, which is called a beavertail. Though they are less common now as trucks are getting bigger with more hauling capability.
